PMID:  22433719     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
While carotid endarterectomy is an established method for the treatment of symptomatic as well as high-grade asymptomatic carotid artery stenoses, there is a considerable variation concerning the kind of anesthesia used as well as technical details of the operation. In the present article differing arguments on local versus general anesthesia as well as a transverse versus a longitudinal skin incision will be discussed. Furthermore, possible access routes to the carotid bifurcation, the retrojugular compared to the ventrojugular approach, will be presented in detail.
